Description of Course
CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) is an IT workforce certification that applies behavioral analytics to devices to prevent, detect as well as combat all kinds of cybersecurity threats.
Why is it different?
CySA+ is the most advanced cybersecurity analyst certification completely covering performance-based questions involving security analytics, intrusion detection and response. CySA+ is considered to be the most up-to-date security analyst certification that covers all advanced persistent threats in a cybersecurity environment.
As attackers have learned to intrude into the traditional signature-based solutions, such as firewalls so an analytics-based approach within the IT security industry is increasingly in demand by most of the organizations. The behavioral analytics skills that CySA+ covers include identifying and combating malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs), that results in enhanced threat visibility across a broad attack surface.
CompTIA CySA+ certification is for IT professionals looking to gain certain security analyst skills:
- Performing data analysis and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats, and risks to an organization.
- Configuration and usage of threat-detection tools.
What Skills Will You Learn?
Apply environmental reconnaissance techniques using appropriate tools, analyzing results, and implementing recommended response
Implement vulnerability management process and analyze results of the scan
SECURITY ARCHITECTURE & TOOL SETS
Use data to recommend remediation of security issues related to identity and access management and recommend implementation strategy while participating in the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).
Distinguish threat data to determine incident impact and prepare a toolkit with appropriate forensics tools, communication strategy, and best practices as a response
